Just last week I had mentioned of a gentleman I knew of here locally that had converted his 73 Midget to electric. I was kind of a scary looking conversion but nevertheless it worked and he drove it often. He had used some old electric mail truck and forklift parts and cobbed it through the stock 4 spd trans. I often seen him on the expressway and he would stop in to our office to show us guys of his car. Well it is pretty sad, I hadnt seen him in a while and someone here sparked a memory just a week or so ago that made me wonder. Unfortunatally there was a small article in Saturdays newspaper that showed a pretty bad picture of what was left of his midget after he collided with a chevy van. And sadly he perished as well. Just an unfortunate reminder that although these cars are sporty and fun we all need to be safe cause we are at a major disadvantage in this SUV era. He will be missed.
